Raised Garden Beds For Growing Vegetables

We've re-designed our 'Premier' range of raised garden beds. We decided to go for a chunkier version of the hugely popular 'Classic' bed made with a much thicker 35mm timber for extra strength if you need it and a longer life. Some peoples raised beds can be subject to heavy knocks from passers by, garden tools or machinery, and vegetable growers may be using theirs for multiple crops in any season. These people require a heavier stronger type of timber which is able to take the wear and tear. Along with being very aesthetically pleasing, these are just some of the reasons Quickcrop designed and manufacture thicker timber growing systems like our "Premier" range. Like all our raised beds, the premier range is very easy to assemble and comes with all the screw necessary and full instructions. Click here for more information on raised beds.

Choose Your Size:
We supply these raised garden beds in flatpack kits in a range of sizes from 3ft x 3ft up to 12ft x 4ft.  You can choose the required size to fit your garden by clicking the BED SIZE tab above the add to cart button.


Longer Life Raised Vegetable Beds From Quickcrop

All our beds are made from timber cut and treated to our specification in our our local sawmills. The preservative used is certified by the soil association safe for use with organic food crops and does not horribly discolour or leave a nasty smell or feel on the wood. A lot of other raised bed manufacturers treat their wood and then cut it to size in an effort to save time and costs. This leads to untreated ends on the timber that suck up moisture and become prone to rot and warp. Our timber is pressure treated after it has been cut to size, leaving no part of the raised bed kit untreated. This helps them last for many years of intensive vegetable gardening.

Very happy with my raised bed which I am converting into a run for my tortoise. There was a minor issue with a plank of wood which the company replaced very quickly. I was able to put the bed together alone and all fixings appeared to be of great quality. I’m that happy that I have ordered a second one to extend the run.

Great quality timber - much more robust and better finished than the typical garden centre offerings. Deducted one star because there were no screws or instructions included. Not a huge deal as its pretty obvious and I had plenty of screws in the toolbox.

The beds are great, arrived promptly. Easy enough to put together once you have an electric screwdriver (you do need this).
George Downes

This bed is easy to assemble providing you have an electric screwdriver. I can't imagine using a manual screw driver to do it however as the wood is so thick. This speaks well of the quality of timber used in the construction however. I'll be primarily using this bed in conjunction with my 14 inch bed as a salad bed. The delivery time was very impressive as well.

A simple structure , easy to assemble , no screws included and quite long screws are required, I had them to hand, but I would think many people would not, a trip to the local DIY for screws would be a frustration .

Does exactly what is says on the tin. Very happy with the quality and thickness of the timber for the price. The kids loved the free jellies, a nice touch, I will be back to purchase more in the futire.

Asked By Aoife M
on November 15th, 2021
Hi would you recommend lining the beds before filling with soil?
Answered by Niall
on November 16th, 2021
Hi Aoife The wood is treated so lining them will not make them last any longer. The only real reason to do so is to line the base. You only need to do this if you are putting the bed on a patio or decking etc. It allows the water through but not any of the soil. If putting on soil or grass don't put a liner in as you want to encourage the worms up from the existing ground. They break up the soil and create great air pockets for roots to travel Niall Quickcrop

Can additional 6’x9” or 6’x7” boards be purchased individually together with raised bed kits?
Answered by Niall
on May 14th, 2021
Hi Lindsay Of course. If you go to the section in the raised beds that you are looking at like Premier beds and in that section there will be a tab for Premier Bed Parts. You will find what you need there Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Robert English

Our garden path is on a slight gradient which was put in by initial gardeners to run up to shed door without a step. I would want to position the raised bed to run beside the path to the shed door, can you advise any problems by placing the raised bed (4’x6’) on this slight gradient?
Answered by Niall
on March 09th, 2021
Hi Robert Putting a raised bed on a gradient is not a major issue provided you dig the back of the bed in to the deep side of the hill so it sits flat Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Alan Hannah

If I order the 1 ton soil container how do you get it from the front of the house to the rear garden. There is a side path from the driveway
Answered by Niall
on March 01st, 2021
Hi Alan The bed comes flatpacked so easy to move to the garden and build it there. But the soil is delivered to the outside kerb on a pallet and you would have to bring it in by wheelbarrow Niall Quickcrop
Asked By David Homfray
on February 23rd, 2021
How are the timbers treated.? if I wanted to reduce the length slightly, what wood treatment should I use
Answered by Niall
on February 24th, 2021
Hi David Yes they are pressure treated. Any good wood sealer from a Hardware store will do if just treating the ends as that won't effect the soil Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Barbara
on October 14th, 2020
Are the measurements you give the size of each plank (i.e. a 6ft plank and a 3ft plank)or the size of the beds when assembled? If the latter is that interior or exterior? Many thanks, Barbara
Answered by Niall
on October 15th, 2020
Hi Barbara It is the size of the bed when build and it is the exterior of the beds. That said you can build the bed 2 ways. One with the end boards on the inside of the side boards or with the end board on to the side boards. This makes a difference of about 2 inches in assembly to the outer size of the beds Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Trevor
on September 17th, 2020
Hi. I'm thinking of getting some raised vegetable beds at the best price.The dimensions I'm thinking are 9inch x 1.25inch by 6x4 feet. Is there a difference in how the premier veg beds and flower beds of these dimensions are made and treated as the price is different? Also it seems that if I purchased the timber individually, rather than in a kit, the saving would be greater still. I'll be grateful for your advice.
Answered by Niall
on September 17th, 2020
Hi Trevor The flower beds and raised beds are the same. This difference in price obviously needs to be looked at so thank you for pointing this out. Buying the boards seperately is a cheaper way to do it but remember that they don't come as a pack with instructions or screws. That said it is not very hard to work it out Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Alison Loring
on August 31st, 2020
What depth should i get for root veg .pls
Answered by Niall
on August 31st, 2020
Hi Alison Realistically for root veg like carrots, parsnips, potatoes you need at least 10 inches of soil depth. So we normally suggest our 14 inch beds. As the soil will settle to 12 inches giving you plenty of depth Niall Quickcrop

I was hoping to purchase two 3x12 9in high bed for soft fruit. Just have 2 queries - this isn't too narrow for full grown plants is it? Also - how many raspberry / blackberry plants would in fit in each?
Answered by Andrew
on June 04th, 2020
Hi Elizabeth. A 3ft bed will be ideal for soft fruit. I would keep a row of raspberries to 2ft wide in an open garden, Blackberries are trained along wires in centre of bed so plenty big enough for them also.

Asked By Anne

Hi, I want to grow tomatoes, mainly in a greenhouse but in a bed that can also be brought outdoors - so want one that we can attach wheels to. What would you recommend? Thanks, Anne
Answered by Niall
on January 02nd, 2020
Hi Anne We don't have any beds on wheels due to the weight of the soil. However you can bring on tomato plants in Growbags which we have and once the plants have established to about 2ft you can lift the bags outside and they will continue to grow. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Elizabeth
on November 03rd, 2019
Is the 9 inch raised beds deep enough for salad crops - lettuce, spring onions, radish? The rest of my raised beds are deeper which I use for vegetables but i'm wondering if I can get away with a lower bed for some veg/salad.
Answered by Niall
on November 04th, 2019
Hi Elizabeth A 9 inch bed is perfect for salads, spring onions, radish and to be honest most veg except for root crops (potatoes, carrots, parsnips etc) Niall Quickcrop

Answered by Niall
on June 10th, 2019
Hi Sophie A bed of this size will take 950 litres of soil which i am afraid to say is 19 of the 50 litre bags. You would be much better off getting one of the tonne bulk bags to fill this bed Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kate Mee
on May 09th, 2019
Hi We have an allotment and are looking to do raised beds on two sections measuring 375cm x 140cm. Please advise if we can do two raised beds of 12ft x 4 ft or need 4 beds of 6 x 4 ft.
Answered by Niall
on May 09th, 2019
Hi Kate The 12ft beds we supply are typically 2 of the 6fts just fixed together. However you can have the centre board covered with soil so it looks like 1 long bed. The reason you need to centre fixings on a 12ft is down to the fact that the wood in the centre will bow with the weight of the soil if it is not supported Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Jack Crompton
on April 25th, 2019
I see from one of your replies that screws are included. Yet in a couple of the reviews customers have complained that screws were NOT included. Please clarify.
Answered by Niall
on April 25th, 2019
Hi Jack Screws and instructions are part of the kit. You might have read older reviews where screws had come off in transit but where this happened we always send them on. Be assured if you order a raised bed it will come with screws and instructions as we have improved our packaging so they don't fall out. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Simon
on February 12th, 2019
Hi, I read your reply to Andy's question below but I'm still not clear about the longer bed options. If I order a "12ft x 3ft" will I get enough boards for two 6ft beds that I could make up separately or is it one long bed with a join halfway along? And the "8ft x 3ft"? Many thanks.
Answered by Megan
on February 13th, 2019
Hi Simon - for 12' beds they are supplied as two 6' boards for either side and we can supply you with enough corner posts to set these up separate or together. For 8' beds this will be one 8' board. If you need more info please feel free to contact me directly at meg.quickcrop@gmail.com. Thanks, Meg - Quickcrop
Asked By Andy Macdonald
on November 05th, 2018
Hi, with regards to bed size you show 12ft x 4ft @ £119.95, yet you say you not deliver longer than 6ft. Presumably made up of x2 6ft x4ft? If so it works out cheaper if I buy 12ft x 4ft rather than x2 6ft x 4ft which works out at £139.90 yes? Cheers Andy
Answered by Niall
on November 05th, 2018
Hi Andy You are correct on both fronts. The 12ft x 4ft should show as slightly cheaper than if you buy the bed in two 6ft sections but the pricing in wrong on the site it should be £129.95 for the 12ft x 4ft. I will leave it at that price for a day or two before adjusting if you want to avail of the mistake we have made on the pricing Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kevin
on April 27th, 2018
Do the boards come with the fixing holes already drilled?
Answered by Niall
on April 27th, 2018
Hi Kevin No they are not pre-drilled however it is very easy to drive the screws through the wood as it is a treated soft wood. Comes with the instructions and screws provided. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Philip Purcell
on March 27th, 2018
Am I correct in reading that I can get a raised bed in 12ft by 2ft kits, 9inch high ?
Answered by Niall
on March 28th, 2018
Thats right Philip. They are made up of 2 x 6ft beds fixed together. A 12ft board would be to long and would bow with the weight of the soil so they need support across the mid section hence the two beds fixed together Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kathleen Kelly
on February 12th, 2018
How much soil would I need to fill a 14 inch high 8ft x 6ft raised bed?
Answered by Niall
on February 12th, 2018
Hi Kathleen. As this is quite a large bed it will take roughly 1400 litres to fill from top to bottom. That said you only need very good quality soil mix on the top 9/10 inches of the bed for good vegetables so 850/900 litres of good soil mix on top would be sufficient.
Asked By Tecwyn Savage
on November 05th, 2017
I'm thinking of buying a couple of raised bed kits, together with some Grow Grid mats, but I find that the sizes don't appear to match! The beds are shown in Imperial, but mats all seem to be 1.5m wide. You also suggest that it's no a good idea to cut the mats, so how do I get around this problem? I suppose I could buy the mats and build my own beds.
Answered by Andrew
on November 07th, 2017
Hi Tecwyn The mats are 1.5 wide and our standard beds are 1.2 wide. We can make a custom size up for you if you wish to build a 1.5 bed, just let me know and I will put together a quote for you. If you would like to email us directly on quickcrop@gmail.com I will attend to this straight away. Andrew

on May 26th, 2016
Do they need "spikes" to fix them in the ground?
Answered by Andrew
on May 31st, 2016
Hi Jill. The beds don't need spikes to fix them into the ground as the weight of soil in the raised bed will hold them in place.
Asked By Michael Pink

Are you able to supply larger sizes, I'm looking for a 4ft x 8ft raised bed? Many thanks
Answered by Andrew
on March 16th, 2016
Hi Michael. Thank you for your question. Due to transport issues the longest boards we supply are 6ft long however we can transport 8ft at an additional charge. If you could phone the office we can work out a price for you on exactly what you need.
Asked By Fiona McHallem
on February 07th, 2016
Hi What is the timber treated with? How environmentally safe is it and how safe is it fir food growing?
Answered by Andrew
on February 08th, 2016
Thank you for your question Fiona. The wood is treated with Tanalith E which is certified by the soil association as fine for use when growing Organic food close to the soil. It is both perfectly fit for use when growing food and slows down the weathering of the wood so good for the environment.
